I do not know, but suspect stderr is a pipe too.  Is a tty required to
run scripts in parallel?  Lets keep this discussion CCed to the BTS

Bounced it to you.

upstart is getting support for handling init.d scripts natively, so
that will be an alternative too.

Would be nice to get startpar to start rcS.d/ and rc2.d/ at once, to
maximize concurrency, as Debian uses init.d scripts also for the early
boot.  Also, would be nice to get dynamic resolution of $remote_fs, to
let it be equal to $local_fs if no networked file systems are listed
in /etc/fstab. :) Not sure how hard that would be.  Lets continue this
part of the discussion without CC-ing the BTS.

Happy hacking,
